## anonymous 5 years ago The circumference of a sperical candle is 15.7 inches. What is the volume of wax in the candle?

1. anonymous

Volume of sphere = 4/3(pi*r^3) so plugging in we get 16 210.1699inches squared.

Firstly, why in the world would you have a spherical candle........ Secondly, $C=\pi*2r$ $15.7=\pi*2r$ r=2.498733 $V=(4/3)\pi*r^{3}$ $V=(4/3)\pi*(2.498733)^{3}$ V= 65.35034 inches cubed.
